As per the previous reviewers, this is indeed a wonderful example of ragtime playing and the instrumental combination is perfect! That said, I will state that the impressive 'riffs' you are hearing are coming from the mandolin, not the ukelele.

This is amazing! Mandolin and ukulele are such a perfect match, who would've known? Two great players did and prove it.
If you enjoyed this, definitely check out their medley of the Hawaiian song "KuÊ»u ipo i ka heÊ»e puÊ»e one," provided by the good people at the UC-SB Cylinder Preservation & Digitization Project:

If you want to hear someone just go nute on a ukelele, you've come to the right place as this guy GOES TO WORK on his ukelele taking the playing to new heights. I initially thought he was playing a banjo. The fact the this was a ukelele makes me that more impressed.
